Daniel Radcliffe wants to star in a remake of Back to the Future. The 22-year-old actor - who is best known for playing the title role in the Harry Potter franchise - would be keen to take on the role of Marty McFly if a new version was ever made.
Speaking about the film - which starred Michael J. Fox - Daniel told The Sun, "If there were a Back to the Future remake I would be in it. I fancy myself as a Michael J. Fox - sort of short and quite hyperactive. That sounds like me."
A Woman in Black follow-up is in development. Studio Hammer is teaming with Alliance Films and Cross Creek Pictures to work on the project, which will be called The Woman in Black: Angels of Death and will take place 40 years after the original movie.
Jon Croker - who worked as a story editor on the first film - will write the picture, with Roy Lee executively producing. It is not believed Daniel Radcliffe, who played the leading character in the first movie, will return as the story will focus on a couple who move into eerie Eel Marsh House four decades after the setting of the original. No director has yet been signed up either.
The Woman in Black has so far taken $120 million at the box office internationally, and marked the first major movie for Daniel following his career in the Harry Potter franchise. Speaking about his break away from playing the boy wizard previously, Daniel revealed his working from a young age made him protective over other youngsters on set:
Daniel Radcliffe believes the Harry Potter franchise has been a "double-edged sword."
The 22-year-old actor shot to fame playing the titular boy wizard in all seven movies and while he learned a lot from the films, he admits it was hard to see his acting shortcomings played out in public while he honed his craft. "It's only recently I've become aware of the problems people had with me in the films. And, you know, people are obviously entitled to their opinions. But we learn from our mistakes. You know, I'm at the age most actors would be when they've learned from their mistakes in private and done drama school for three years. It's a double-edged sword. I had the amazing privilege of working with these fantastic actors for 10 years and learning from them, but I also had - we all did - the slight curse of somebody seeing, basically, our acting exercises."
Daniel believes his acting has improved massively working on his new film The Woman In Black because he had learned to connect with his emotions: "The emotional stuff is the trickiest, absolutely. And that's why I feel I made some strides in this film because actually, for the first time, I felt able to really allow my own emotions to come out through the character. I know it sounds bizarre to say this now, but it was a fairly new experience for me, for whatever reason. I think I had a sense of it on the last Potter, but not before then."
UPDATE: Warner Bros. has pulled the footage.

We just got our first look at the movie poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 -- and, it’s totally awesome. The poster delivers a clear message to moviegoers: the eighth, and final, film installment will feature an epic battle between The Boy Who Lived and He Who Shall Not Be Named.
In the poster, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is smeared with blood, and Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) looks just plain mean. The film comes to theaters on July 15, so keep your wands at the ready.

Seven books, eight movies, ten years -- and it all came down to this. In the video above, you’ll see the last scene ever filmed for the epic Harry Potter film franchise, a bittersweet ending to a tale that’s still in the making on the big screen.
Fittingly, the last scene featured title star Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter and his co-stars Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron). The scene was part of their escape from The Ministry of Magic, which we already saw in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I.

Kids are All Right star Mia Wasikowska did more than all right in 2010.
Thanks to her breakout role in Alice in Wonderland, the actress with the hard-to-spell last name managed to land on one of Forbes’ year-end lists.
Mia tied with Johnny Depp for second place on the magazine’s "Hollywood's Highest-Grossing Actors" chart. Both Alice actors saw their respective film(s) ring up approximately $1.03 billion in total.
Leonardo DiCaprio – with help from Shutter Island and Inception – placed first with $1.1 billion.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader sailed to a first place finish this weekend despite a lackluster start. The latest C.S. Lewis adaptation – which was produced for an estimated $145 million – earned only $24 million in domestic sales. That figure is $31 million less than Prince Caspian’s debut and approximately $41 million below The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’s premiere.
Landing into second place was The Tourist, which rang in a disappointing $16.5 million. Although the film boasted two big A-list stars (Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie), the thriller turned in Depp’s smallest open for a wide release since 1999’s The Astronaut’s Wife.

You can’t keep a good woman with long locks down.
Despite initially debuting in second place, Tangled reached new heights this week. The Disney feature climbed out of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow’s shadow to take the box office crown.
Tangled is now the second film this year to move up the ladder to the #1 spot. Another animated featured, How to Train Your Dragon, was the first.
The chart’s only new wide release, The Warrior’s Way, will likely fall out of the Top Ten by Week 2. The actioner starring Jang Dong-gun, Kate Bosworth and Geoffrey Rush started its run in ninth place.

Tangled's tresses weren't quite long enough to get past the Deathly Hallows last weekend.
Despite a $48.8 million debut ($68.7 million since Wednesday), Disney's latest animated feature found itself in a tight race. The film starring Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi landed firmly into second place -- approximately $300,000 shy of two-time winner Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Burlesque, featuring Christina Aguilera and Cher, rang up $11.9 million in ticket sales and a fourth-place finish. Although that figure isn't exactly something to brag about, it does represent Cher's biggest opening to date.
Promises of nudity couldn't get Love and Other Drugs into the Top 5. The Anne Hathaway/Jake Gyllenhaal movie earned less than $10 million and a sixth place debut. Meanwhile, Faster -- starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Billy Bob Thornton -- grossed $8.5 million for seventh place.
